Hurricane Irma made its way into Georgia this week, and Chapin and I suffered through about 44 hours without power. We had to throw away most of what was in our fridge and freezer, and go without cable TV, Internet and other conveniences of modern day life for a (little) while. (I think I most missed my hairdryer.) But we had gas (read: hot water), plenty of flashlights, and decent bottles of wine on hand, so those two days were more than bearable.

I don't want to seem like I'm complaining, because I'm thankful -- so thankful -- that we didn't have to deal with more, and that my entire family and friends/clients in Florida (blame Irma) and Texas (thanks to Harvey) are safe and sound.

It helps to have perspective.

Today will be my only post for the week, so I thought I would wear a dress that I was really excited about. I think this Ted Baker London dress is just adorable. The belt, combined with the stretchy material you see with so many Ted Baker dresses, is ultra flattering, and the colors are distinctly autumn-like. So, even though it's technically still summer, I thought today would be a good day to usher in a new season.
